the best kind of test

You know what the best kinds of tests are? The kind where your professor gives them to you before you actually have to take them so that you can know all the answers when you go take it. Its kind of amazing. I have the same teacher for 2 classes and he is foreign which is very common at UVU... so I can't completely understand what he is talking about all the time. But I go to class and I write word for word all of his power points down just to stay awake, but mainly I go to class to sign the roll. This is the style for both of his classes that he teaches. It's realy hard to pay attention and I was even more scared thinking about what his tests were going to be like because I wasn't picking up one bit of anything he was throwing out. Until he emailed us the "review" which was actually a copy of the test. When I got to go through that I actually learned a lot about the topic and it turns out that he does actually know what he is talking about. I wish all my teachers had tests like this.


Why is it that the times that you have all the time in the world to do something and you have a million things that you should be doing, you don't want to do ANYTHING. I really don't get the way my mind works. I think I need to train it to want to do things all the time even if I am so bored all I want to do is sit here. I know, I know its been forever since my last post...really embarrassing. But the more I thought about how much need to do a post, the more I didn't want to and more things I found to do instead of it. Such as sleeping, watching the TV show that I had missed because I now work at night so I can never see them the night the air, thinking about doing my homework or just avoid the thought of it, you know the really productive things. But here I am on a Friday night - the first Friday night of my new working nights career. I have always been a 9-5er so this is going to take some getting used to. But the nice thing is that its usually pretty slow so I have time to do things like blog :) Lots of new things have happened these past few months such as starting school again, getting a new job, moving into a bedroom where I have a room-roommate, not being able to go to my gym classes at night and just getting used to the new schedule. I am one who usually really likes change, but I'm not sure how I feel about so many things happening all at once...

So in the past about 4 times a year I lose my voice. Its so weird and I usually don't feel too sick other than just not being able to talk. Since I got my tonsils out I was sure that I wouldn't get sick anymore, and I was positive I wouldn't lose my voice. I was wrong. Yesterday I woke up to a pretty scratchy throat and I had a very annoying voice, but as the day went on, it got better and better. This morning when I woke up, I couldn't even talk at all. Just a very quiet whisper. I don't get it. It doesn't help at all that for my job at Nuskin I am the technical support person so I talk on the phone the whole time. I wasn't sure how this was going to work out, but I had to go to work! I couldn't just not go to work because I felt fine and I have got to pay rent somehow! So I came in anyway and once people heard me talk they were like umm... you shouldn't be here. They were probably right, but I didn't care.. where there is a will there is a way. So here I am 5 hours into my shift and not one person has even mentioned the sound of my scratchy voice. I talk a little bit deeper but it seems to be working!

But now I want to go home...
